A Split Tent: Divison on the Right

These days, it seems that the only thing that can bring dissenting thinkers together is a rally. And by rally, I mean a fist-fighting, pepper spray-filled, flag-burning fight club. It’s an inspiring picture of a country united by their mutual hatred of one another. Even inanimate objects like statues of long dead men are not immune from political hit jobs! In all seriousness, our current political climate is one of the most dire national concerns we are facing today. Most Americans understand that we are deeply ideologically divided as a country. Many of us are also aware that this division...

Postmodern Architecture: The Mistake of Art for Art’s Sake

The distinction between a masterpiece and a piece of trash is left largely to preference. Further, it’s true that we all have our own unique tastes. However, despite the claims of postmodern thinkers, it seems difficult to deny that inherent beauty exists in art and architecture just as it does in the natural world. Of course, that’s not what you’ll hear from some on the cultural left. To them, literally and figuratively deconstructing architecture is just another way of challenging the objective worldview that the rest of us take for granted.

But we also know that our ideas...

The Unreliability of Progressives’ Moral Relativism

As much as they accuse the right of cruelty and criminality, many leftists seem fine engaging in it themselves. As self-appointed arbiters of morality and truth, they have a selective eye when it comes to determining who among them is worthy of their benevolence and mercy. Like kings among the unwashed masses, progressives see liberty in society as people resisting their own best interests. According to the gospel of progressive thought, those who do not submit to their new, “enlightened” perspective must be punished. This resistance to liberty, from bashing Trump supporters with baseball bats to blacklisting conservative speakers, seems shocking at...

In Syria, Trump Makes Good on His Promise

Against the backdrop of the country’s humanitarian crisis, Syria became a touchstone issue in the 2016 presidential election. Candidate Hillary Clinton promised to create a no-fly zone over the war-torn nation, while Donald Trump stated his intention to stay out of Syria’s internal affairs. Of course, the voters ultimately chose to support Trump and his vision. Fast forward to April 2017. Following a chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib Province purportedly conducted by forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad, President Trump conducted a controversial bombing raid against Assad’s forces that led many to suspect that his policy toward intervention had shifted....
